49ers To Get ‘Hard Knocks’-Style Treatment In Discovery Channel Special
Led by the producers of Hard Knocks, a new Discovery Channel series aims to chronicle the 49ers’ journey to London this fall.
The special, called “NFL in Season,” will follow the 49ers as they travel to Wembley Stadium to face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 27.
“We are excited to give fans back in the U.S. a behind-the-scenes look at these games,” Ross Ketover, a producer for NFL Films, said in a statement.
The two-part series opens with a look at the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Minnesota Vikings game played Sept. 29 in London. (That show airs at 10 p.m. PT on Oct. 4). The second installment will focus on the 49ers vs. Jacksonville game. (That show airs at 10 p.m. PT on Nov. 1).
The Discovery Channel said it plans to capture everything from snippets of coaches’ game-plan sessions to players visiting tourist spots around the city to fly-on-the-wall looks before and after each game.
